Movie Reviews

Where was Quality Control?
David Blake | Basingstoke, Hampshire, United Kingdom | 12/01/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"It's great to see all these titles being released by Timeless Media Group, but - if they are all as badly mastered as this set - they needn't have bothered.

I agree the previous comments - skips, pixilations - particularly on Disc Two. Timeless need to get their act together quickly - I would have thought a recall of all dodgy discs a necessary first step."
Problems with the episode called BLOWUP
P. Williams | Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom | 11/30/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This series which we have all longed for to be put on to DVD has a major fault with Discs 2 & 3. The episode BLOWUP is faulty and will not play. Not enough care and attention has been paid to copying these episodes to DVD. Its not only my copy that is faulty, but people I know in the USA and in Australia are finding this DVD susbstandard with faults on this episode. They all need to be recalled and we should be supplied with episodes that play properly in our DVD players. So I advise everyone to steer clear of these DVDs until this fault has been corrected.

TV Show is fine - DVD media is defective

"I bought my discs in March 2008 and had the same problem everybody else did. Lots of pixelation and the second episode on the second disc ("Blow Up") stops half-way through. Timeless Media should be ashamed of themselves.

The quality of the show itself is fine. The source film prints are quite clear, the plots are adequate, and the acting is 1st rate. The show holds up quite well after all these years."

"I disagree with the guy who thinks the more expensive the DVD player the better job it will do. And sorry fella, but some of the players $100 or less will play discs just as good. The more expensive DVD players actually have so many added features that they sometimes will actually cause more disc problems. I own 7 DVD players....two cost of $700.00 and I can say as one with experience that my less expensive machines have less problems with playback. People think just because it costs more money it means it is better. It may have better sound output or provide HDV quality. But as for bad discs like that offered in RIVERBOAT no machine is going to play them properly. I agree...these are poorly recorded. Frankly it looks like someone who has copied them from VHS and were not professionally produced. They were not digitally enhanced in any way. They really look like copies of copies."
